"Ordered my drink @Starbucks," Hunt wrote on Twitter. "Asked the barista if she wanted my name."

But, recognizing Hunt as a legendary Hollywood star, the barista "winked and said, 'We gotcha.'"

The only problem was, of course, that the barista actually thought that Hunt was Jodie Foster! Along with her tweet, Hunt shared a photo of her iced tea with the name "Jody" scrawled along the side of the cup.

So, not only did the barista flub which actual celeb she was making a beverage for, but she also spelled her name incorrectly.

The tweet has since gone viral, being retweeted over 12,000 times and making headlines around the world.

Just another day in the life of a beloved celebrity!
